and not go about our daily business. >> septembers', secretary of state hillary clinton suggests the attack was a spontaneous attack about the antiis lamb video. >> there is no justification, none at all, for responding to this video with violence. >> white house press secretary jake carney explicitly blames the video the next day. >> these proprosts -- proe protests were in reaction to a video. we have no information to suggest it was preplanned attack. >> later that day, at the transfer of a ceremony at joint base andrews, clinton talks again about the video. >> we have seen rage and violence directed at american embassies over an awful, internet video that we had nothing to do with. >> the father of one of those killed, later tells fox news, clinton told him personally that they were going to arrest and prosecute the producer of the video. the next day, september 15th. california authorities haul nick call la, the man responsible for the video, and march him in from of tv cap razz, then the u.s. ambassador goes on five sunday talk shows, repeating the same story each time. >> this was no
that bill clinton carried in '96 and that president obama carried. >> if that poll is accurate, romney will win florida for sure, if he's going to carry i-4 by that big a margin. most indications are that he's going to win the state. however, you have to point out, the obama campaign says they're competing in all the battleground states, and they are. the president's one event today is in florida with bill clinton, 10:00 this morning. >> going to be right in the middle of the i-4 corridor. >> right in the middle. they're competing there. they're not giving up. they're using their most precious asset today, one obama visit with bill clinton to go to florida. so they're not giving up, but there's no question romney has an edge there right now. >> you usually have, mika, north florida against south florida and central florida being what makes a difference. the south florida poll out of miami-dade shows the president -- >> largest county in the state, 52%-43%. >> that's not a surprise. i will tell you, this next poll, though, is a surprise. >> all right. let's go to virginia. the latest "w
will be here tomorrow. bill clinton last night and this morning. there is a lot of surrogate traffic and part of that is because early voting is under way right now and goes on through tomorrow. and both sides are really trying to energize people and get them out to the polls during this week. >> brianna, i'm looking behind you. just quickly peek over the back of your shoulder to your left, air force one just came right into a perfect view for us. thank you very much. but i want to ask you, this was a campaign stop in green bay that was really supposed to happen tuesday, which the president cancelled because of the storm and emergency work that he needed to do. so what did they do? did they go on with the event as scheduled and then add this one, or have they just rejigged the schedule? >> reporter: they sort of adjusted it a little bit. i think it was an evening event was the idea on tuesday. but for instance, charles woodson, who, yes, did make that very generous $100,000 donation -- or announced it here to the red cross, he was going to be at the event tuesday, and he was at the event here
-- >> and minnesota, minnesota is not even a key swing state. you've got bill clinton going in because a new poll shows mitt romney within the margin of error in minnesota. plus, you have some information about some space where the republicans are about to start rushing in and putting up campaign ads that are not states that the obama team thought they would have to worry about one week out. >> we're going to go into election day not knowing. i don't care how rabid a partisan you are, we're going to go into election day not knowing who is going to win this. the race is simply too close, too many variables and the storm has a lot of new ones. we just can focus on what we see. one thing we see is democrats are playing a little bit more definition than they thought they would. and if you bring those states in to the electoral college picture, minnesota, pennsylvania, maybe michigan, where republican allies of mitt romney are now going on the offensive, it changes the electoral college outlook quite a bit. not saying governor romney's going to win any of those. they say we're not going to lose these
scheduled in orlando this morning with president clen -- clinton, and then they announced that the president would be coming back to washington this morning, probably heading to air force one as we speak to be in the white house and on the scene on top of preparations for hurricane sandy. so president clinton will be speaking in orlando, and joe biden in ohio. meanwhile you didn't think anybody could defending richard mourdock, right? >> i would hope not. >> bill: after saying he couldn't allow any exception for abortion even in the case of rape, that is something that god intended. yesterday on this week newt gingrich defends him. >> every candidate i know every decent american i know condemns rape. why didn't stephanie cutter get over it. we all condemn rape. why can't we also defend killing babies. >> bill: yeah, just get over. it the fact that he says after todd akin says a woman can't get pregnant because of rape and richard mourdock says even if she does get pregnant she has to go through with that baby because it's part of god's plan. and newt s
clinton in youngstown, ohio. orlando, florida. and then lastly, northern virginia right here in river city. we'll see how that goes on monday what the weather looks like. we're expected to get the brunt of it as you just heard between monday and tuesday. meanwhile the president, as you mentioned, has been giving interviews, talking about that fiscal cliff. the quote of the day yesterday you had it on the super, he promises to wash john boehner's car and walk mitch mcconnell's dog. turns out mitch mcconnell doesn't have a dog, in order to get something done to avoid that fiscal cliff everyone is predicting economic catastrophe. meanwhile, an nbc affiliate out of denver talked about some of the themes that he's working on and hitting mitt romney with. >> i fought for middle-class families in colorado and all across the country. that's the kind of president i think you want. and i'm looking forward to having the privilege of serving another four years. a lot of it is going to depend on colorado so i hope everybody takes advantage of early vote in colorado. you guys are always ahead of the cur
times were under reagan and clinton where economic growth was in excess of 4%. your an economist. are you thinking we're going to get 4% growth in the next couple of years? >> yeah, i do. if mr. romney is elected, we will get 4% to 5% growth. >> why? >> because he will attack the real problem. >> why? >> stimulus spending is like a band-aid. it's a temporary -- we need to solve the problems with regard to china, reopen our energy sector and have reasonable regulations to business so they're not afraid to invest. if we grew the economy at the pace that mr. reagan did, we would surely get 12 million jobs, even more than that and we would get unemployment down to some acceptable level. >> the tax drop under reagan, which everybody likes to quote, was significantly larger than anything being proposed, including by mitt romney and anything more than we can afford right now. but stay right there, peter. we'll come back to this. >> ali, let me bring in diane swonk, who can take the politics out of this for a moment. we're not going to wake up to the same economic problems on wednesday j

petraeus and secretary panetta and john brennan? who was he in contact with? hillary clinton? who made the decisions? when did they make h them?alsoe consulate was in danger did they have reis serve and contingency plans as to what would happen if it was attacked. you have a president giving orders to save american lives but lives were not saved. and what did the president do? he went to las vegas. i would have thought george bush, bill clinton, they would not have left the white house until they he find out what happened. also remember after bin laden was killed we sawal of these photo the president in the situation room and who was there and what they were doing. why don't we see those photos now you and what he was doing when the attack was being care relationshipped out? >> the spokesman for the national security council said neither the president nor any one else at the white house denied requests for help to benghazi. where does that leave you to suspect the answer the decision was made to stand down? was it internally at the cia. we have heard from secretary clinton and secretar
. but the move comes on the heels of secretary of state hillary clinton's trip to algeria where the crisis was the focus. she is trying to secure algerian support for any international military action that could be needed to oust the al qaeda-linked rebels which have taken over the northern part of the country. >>> the american intelligence community managed to trim its budget. according to the director of national intelligence, james clapper, the budget for intelligence programs in fiscal 2012 was $53.9 billion. sounds like a heck of a lot of money, but it's the first time the intelligence budget has been cut since the september 1th attacks. the drop was very small. it was only 1%. but it is a trend worth noting, because it will probably continue, at least this year, set to drop another 2.4%. >>> nasa's recovery cure costy is at mars. today it finished its initial examination of martian soil. the results are pretty similar to volcanic soil found in the paradise of hawaii. cure curiosity determined what it was made of, the instrument beamed x-rays at the soil, sort of what geologists use
using. somebody they had put out on their own. not quite the level of bill clinton for obama but not bad. you know. marco rubio and chris christie sort of are the two sort of stars that can get people on their own. and here he is with obama. i tell you, you see him -- here's another sort of fascinating thing to watch. the number of photographs that people asked to take with the two of them, and they kept taking them. what are they going to say? you have these people at the shelter or their homes and they're both emotional, upset, and excited to meet the president and the governor. and here they were posing for pictures together. the two of them. with constituents in new jersey too. that part of it was a little surreal, especially when i sort of remind myself that today's wednesday and election day is, i don't know, not even 200 hours away. >> an extraordinary day. chuck todd, thank you very much for joining us tonight. >> you got it. >>> across the river from new york city, hoboken, new jersey remains mostly flooded and mostly without power. as much as a foot of water flooded into the ci
, bill clinton was campaigning in minnesota yesterday. do you think that the obama campaign is worried about these states? >> i would say that i would get worried or i think maybe increase the level of concern about these potential battle grounds if you saw the principals going there. the most precious resource that a campaign is the candidate's time because that's finite with only six or so days left. if you send surrogates like bill clinton to minimnesota, you don really lose anything by doing that. it's kind of a plus plus. so i think it's a smart strategy. if i see more polls coming out of minnesota or michigan or pennsylvania showing this a close race and showing the president's numbers down to 48 or 47, then i'll get concerned. up until that happens, i'm not going to be that concerned about those states. >> so if romney is concerned then we would see romney making a stop in those states? >> he's partially right but he's also spending money there. they're not going to spend money after bad. if the poll numbers are as close as you put up on the screen, chris, then if you have the r
with former president bill clinton at a rally at the university of central florida this morning. yesterday the president spoke with our own joe scarborough and mika bra skin zi in new hampshire. he talked about a lightening rod issue for this election, the attack in benghazi. >> what my attitude on this is is if we find out that there was a big breakdown and somebody didn't do their job, they'll be held accountable. ultimately as commander in chief i am responsible and i don't shy away from that responsibility. my number one responsibility is to go against people who did this. >>> you can watch joe and mika's full interview this morning on "morning joe" at the top of the hour. >>> still ahead, the latest headlines. marco rubio's daughter airivity willed to a hospital after a golf cart rollover. and then sports. you're watching "first look" on msnbc.

. he's set to join former president clinton at a campaign event in orlando before returning to the white house to take care of what's going on with hurricane sandy. as far as the election goes, mitt romney is leading president obama in florida. when you break it down in central florida where the president needs a boost, he trails there along the i-4 corridor by six points according to a "tampa bay times" pole. miami dade county has him up 52% to 43%. president obama is up. in old dominion the latest washington post poll has president obama hanging on to a four-point lead. last month it was an eight point spread in virginia. in the buckeye state, a new ohio news poll has it dead even 49-49. any advantage the president had, five points, is now gone. on the trail yesterday mitt romney forced to change course his self because of the storm. after canceling three rallies in virginia, he teemed up with his running mate in ohio telling supporters only a ryan/romney could bridge the divide. >> we have to reach across the aisle. we have to find good democrats. democrats love america t
're going to continue to chat about this all morning. he writes by the end of president clinton's second term our economy created 23 million new jobs, incomes rose, poverty fell, deficits became the biggest surplus in history. and what his point in part of this op-ed is if you look to the last democrat who he says he's shaping himself in that, in that image, if you will, you know, he was successful in that kind of a strategy. >>> the first two years of president clinton's administration weren't terribly interesting. the economy didn't do very well. however, in november of 1994, when the republicans won the house and the senate, all of a sudden, the stock market started going up, job creation started going up, we got a cut in the capital gains tax, a cut in the capital gains tax, and all of clinton's spending programs were eliminated. all of the things he was going to spend money on. he was planning on having deficits $200 billion a year, if you look at his budget from '93 and '94. what changed was he lost control of congress and all of his spending plans were taken off the table. that's
from the 1990s, which is president clinton, who had a balanced budget. he asked the wealthy to pay more. the rates went up to 39.6. we had eight years of very strong growth. >> including surplus. >> i'm not saying the taxes cause that but we know that having higher taxes on wealthy americans didn't lead to a recession as republicans have argued. that's what's really daunting about the whole discussion about taxes. the fact that we have no real idea what mitt romney will do on taxes as president other than if we take him at his word, it does mean that middle class americans will pay more in taxes. either he is not being honest with us or middle class americans will see a tax increase. that's the choice people have. >> he also seems to be threatening us a little bit. ari, i want you to respond to this. let's listen to mitt romney who seems to be threatening that if president obama is reelected that republicans are going to take us over the fiscal cliff. let's listen to this. >> unless we change course, with he may well be looking at another recession. you know that if the president is ree
administration. good to have you with us. richard socarides is former senior adviser to president clinton. ben smith we're going to go ahead and introduce. he is stuck in traffic, as you know, the traffic is so awful in new york city. i mean, it takes such a long time to even get across town or downtown, because, of course, with the subways only now getting back into service in a limited way, a huge problem. ben, normally i would mock you for not getting to my show, but today i will not. we'll start with john berman. he has a look at some of the stories making news. >> meanwhile, flights have resumed at laguardia after a lot of disruption from sandy. look at these pictures. it's impressive they got it open today. new york city's other two major airports reopened yesterday morning. this doesn't mean everything is back to normal. all three airports are running at reduced schedules. >>> cnn ireporter george dupont shot these stunning images in connecticut. both were just piled on top of each other at a boatyard on bluff avenue, and right near homes, practically on top of homes nearby. he's lived
. >>> welcome back to "politicsnation." former president clinton has been one of the big stories in this campaign. tirelessly helping president obama in critical swing states. and then there's former president george w. bush. he's out doing something that makes the romney camp very nervous. is is he praising the president like governor chris christie has been doing? no, not that. what president bush is doing might even be worse for romney. he's jetting to the luxurious cayman islands today to give a message about investing money there. the lush palm trees, bright white sand, glorious sunshine and, of course, the secret bank accounts. >> we are home of the finer things life has to offer and global financial services. we are the cayman islands. tap into the wealth of investment opportunities available in the cayman islands. >> in other words, it's a perfect place to hide your money. something the governor knows all about. romney's invested as much as $8 million in funds on the island with another multimillion dollar base there. and his old company bain has set up nearly 140 secret
about it for the first time listening to your broadcast will i can say that i believe secretary clinton made the right decision here. to order an independent, objective investigation and review and that's underway. sometimes these things take time. and they don't lend themselves to people's political endars. i also think, the two most important issues getting lost is, what can we do to upgrade embassy security, and that means that republicans and democrats should fully fund in the congress and receive security. and can we go after the groups that killed ambassador chris stevens and his colleagues? president obama said he will do that and i trust he is trying to do that. i think that's where we should be putting our attention, especially this week. >> a final question to you. is it possible that we may never know why certain crucial pieces of information that were known to some people very early on were not shared with the american public? that we'll never know whether there was a concerted decision and who made it? >> well, that would be a shame. it would be a problem, a travesty. and i
his administration through susan rice, jay carney, the secretary of state hillary clinton and the president himself continue for 17 days to say something that they knew, peter, they knew was not true. and why? why on earth have we continued to ignore situation videotape drone flying overhead. why was there no attempt to send in some kind of rescue, diversionary tactic its. these are simple questions that layman can ask. i think it's one of the most embarrassing chapters of u.s. history. there are lives. -- there are lies, there are coverups. unlike bill clinton and monica lewenski, there are four dead americans as a result. we absolutely deserve an answer. it's not about the election. i wish this weren't happening so close to an election. because it is easy to say this is just election year politics. this is not. this is the -- really the integrity of the united states government on the line. >> governor, why do we have to wait until after the election to have these hearings? >> well, because i think there is a good reason the white house doesn't want all the time line, al
the responsibility elsewhere. the economy, it's george bush's fault. benghazi, hillary clinton's fault. well, the buck stops with the president of the united states. he asked for the job. it's his responsibility to stay on top of it and he right now is not staying on top of this recovery. >> rupert murdoch has tweeted tonight that he thinks that governor christie should now publicly declare very loudly and clearly, redeclare his support for mitt romney given all the praise he's lavished on the president and if he doesn't, then he would bear the blame, according to mr. murdoch, for the next four years in barack obama gets in. what do you make of that? >> oh, i don't go that far at all. i think at the point at which chris christie was saying that it was all quite legitimate. i think president obama at the beginning of this did keep his concentration on this and i think he was entitled to what chris christie said about him. what i'm saying is in the last couple of days, he has been 100% devoted to running for office. he has taken his eye off the ball and in some parts of new york, some parts of
to ask the wealthiest americans to go back to the tax rates they paid when bill clinton was in office. because as long as i'm president, i will never turn medicare into a voucher just to pay for another millionaire's tax cuts. i will never allow this nation to be plunged into another battle over health care reform just so insurance companies can jump back into the driver's seat. i will never allow politicians in washington to control health care choices that women should be making for themselves. so, wisconsin, we know what change is. we know what the future requires. we don't need a big government agenda or a small government agenda. we need a middle class agenda that rewards hard work and responsibility. we don't need a partisan agenda. we need a commonsense agenda that says when we educate a poor child, we'll all be better off. that says when we fund the research of a young scientist, her new discovery will benefit every american. we need a vision that says we don't just look out for ourselves. we look out for one another. we look out for future generations, and we meet those oblig
as information comes out. he will describe tonight, and i look forward to asking him, what hillary clinton told him, what the president told him and how it just doesn't jive with the facts as they have been revealed day after day. so it will be emotional, but it is not unlike the interview i think that i had a few weeks ago with pat smith who is sean smith's mother who said leon panetta held her face in his hands saying i will get you the truth. and then weeks and weeks later she hasn't heard anything. >> what action -- do you feel in your capacity with all your experience hearing cases, trying cases, do you think the answers to this situation will ever come to light? >> absolutely. you know what, i talked to jason on the house oversight committee, and he is talking about the fact that more and more whistle-blowers are coming out because they are so insensed with the spin and the narrative and the lies that are coming out. here is the bottom line, jaism me. jaime, when our americans go to a foreign land, are we going to protect them? are we going to back them up? what does this mean? is this a
